A friendly and welcoming family home in the heart of Bristol's greenest inner city neighbourhood. We love travelling and take pride in making our home a comfortable retreat for guests, we hope you'll come and stay with us soon!

The Space

We live on a quiet street in the arty neighbourhood of St Werburghs, a short walk from Bristol city centre, Montpelier/Stokes Croft or Glos Rd and there are plenty of lovely things to do nearby, including drinking in the atmosphere at one of our wonderful local pubs! This double room overlooks the garden and is delightfully bright and sunny, with high quality cotton sheets and duck down bedding on the very comfortable bed.

I've tried to cover everything I could think of in this listing, but if I've left anything out or if you have any questions please do feel free to ask. I respond to all enquiries and booking requests as fast as possible, almost always within a couple of hours.

This room can comfortably fit a single person or couple and an additional young child/baby at a squeeze (no charge for children under 5). We have a single room available on a separate listing: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/688996 and we are able to host three adults or a family of four (with an additional travel cot or bed in the single room) between the two rooms, but both rooms must be booked separately (please message me to arrange this). We are very family/child friendly and if you need a blow-up mattress, travel cot, highchair etc for your little one(s) we've got everything you might need and you're more than welcome to use them.

A delicious continental breakfast is included in the nightly rate and tasty home cooked dinners can be provided if arranged in advance. We eat organic and ethically wherever possible and the same is provided for our guests. Let us know if you have allergies or preferences and we'll try hard to accommodate them. Tea and coffee are always available and I love to bake, so you may well find a delicious home-made cake on the kitchen counter when you arrive.

This lovely room is furnished with a desk and chair, bookshelves, double bed and plenty of room to store your things in the wardrobe. We hope to help make travelling a bit easier, so you'll find toiletries, a universal travel adaptor and hairdryer all in your room. Clean linens and towels are provided and spare towels and blankets are in the bottom of your wardrobe if needed. There's a small shared bathroom with bath and overbath shower and a shared kitchen/dining room so you can make your own meals while you're here. There are two communal tvs with cable connection in both the kitchen and front room, free WiFi throughout the house and both a washing machine and dryer should you need to do laundry. We want you to feel at home while you're with us, the only spaces that are 'off limits' are our own bedrooms and the office.

Interaction with Guests

We work full time so may be quite busy during the week. Some guests enjoy feeling part of our sometimes chaotic family and others prefer to have a bit more space, we'll do our best to get the balance right while you're here.

The Neighborhood

The area - St Werburghs:
I know I'm biased, but St Werbs is by far my favourite part of Bristol. It's urban, edgy, multi-cultural and eco-friendly. We might be inner city, but we've got a super villagey type feel. There's a surprising amount of green space considering we're a mile from the centre with some lovely walks to be had (which we'd be happy to guide you towards or even take you on, time permitting). The St Werburghs City Farm is a brilliant place to take your little ones or to enjoy a terrific meal. Just down the road you'll find Undercover Rock - a climbing centre in the old St Werburghs church. There are also several very good pubs nearby (the Duke of York is my personal fave, but the Farm Pub is also good fun and often has live music), some good cafes and take aways and loads of arty things happening year round such as the St Werburghs Art Trail or regular craft fairs at the Farm and the community centre.

There is a post office, a corner shop and several delicious take outs literally around the corner, and a park at the end of the road. We're a very short (five minutes) walk from the Bristol climbing centre, St Werburghs city farm and the Better Food Company, an award winning organic supermarket. Within ten-fifteen minutes walk you'll find Cabot Circus (city centre shopping area with Cinema de Lux), Montpelier/Stokes Croft and St Andrews park/Glos Rd, perhaps the country's longest road of independent shops.

Getting around

We're just off the M32 and about a mile from the central bus station, so very convenient and easy to find. We are close to three local bus lines - 5, 25 and 70. The 5/25 bus stops around the corner, goes straight through the city centre and continues on towards the UWE Bower Ashton campus. In the other direction it passes the Eastville Shopping Centre (Tescos, Ikea, etc) and onto Horfield. The 70 bus is a short walk up Ashley Down Hill and runs through the centre to Temple Meads. We are a 12 minute walk to the Montpelier train station, which goes to Bristol Temple Meads in one direction and Clifton Down in the other (handy for Whiteladies Rd, the University and the BBC). The University of Bristol is less than 2 miles or a 35 minute walk away. Despite being so close to the action, our street is surprisingly quiet and there is plenty of free on-street parking nearby.

Other Things to Note

We require that guests have verified IDs (just like us) as you'll be staying in our family home. This means you will have to upload a government issued ID on the desktop (not mobile) site. If this is your first time booking on Airbnb and you are having trouble with the verification process, please get in touch and I will try to help.

You can check our availability 100% accurately by clicking on the calendar link above. Bookings are only accepted through the Airbnb website and the first person to book is the one that guarantees the room for those dates. Please feel free to contact me with any questions before or after booking.

You'll get the exact address and detailed directions once you've made your reservation. Once you arrive, you'll have an in-depth house manual, a guide to the local area and several maps and guidebooks to Bristol in your room.

  • Natasha was a great host, we enjoyed our stay even though it was only for one night.
    A welcoming, relaxed atmosphere and spotlessly clean.
    Natasha's experience as a host showed, lovely toiletries, bottles of water, bars of chocolate and guide books to use in the room. We tried the Runcible Spoon restaurant which was on the recommended list and had a scrummy meal there.
    She made a special effort to meet my non dairy requirements and the breakfast was great.

  • I had a lovely sleep at Natasha's house, and they made me feel very welcome. The children were lovely (as is the dog) and I was very lucky to find myself somewhere so homely, whilst away from my own home. Thank you to you all. The toiletries were really nice, as was the cup of tea on arrival, the cake, and the bar of chocolate in my room! And my breakfast was (website hidden)

  • My stay in Natasha's house has been great! She and her family are lovely and I am felling as in my home. The green room is perfect to stay for a long time and the house is perfect if you need stay in Bristol for study or work. It is near UWE and the city center too and if you like running there is near a nice area to run. I am grateful for her hospitality and I think it is a lovely place to stay if you visit Bristol.

  • Really enjoyed our stay with Natasha and Ed.
    They were very speedy in booking the room and also very flexible to our stay, made it all very easy and relaxing process.
    The room was spotless clean and the shower was outstanding.
    Chocolates, water bottles and freshly cut flowers as a welcome gift were so sweet and thoughtful!:) We also got fancy shampoo/conditioner/body lotion and bath salt samples, which made our stay very comfortable.
    Would highly recommend their place if you are planning to stay in Bristol.

About
Thinker, mother, crafter, activist, reader, animal-lover, wanderer, foodie. I'm a researcher and my work is focussed on health inequalities, poverty and social justice. I've spent a lot of time in East and central Africa and am always looking for an excuse to go back... I think I might have left my heart in Tanzania. We're a family of four with two (mostly) well behaved children and a lovely dog called Freddie. The kids are friendly but know to give our guests space. We often fill our free time with food and friends - love to have people round for a good meal or bake a scrumptious cake to enjoy over a good chat, if you're staying for a more than a few days, no doubt you will be invited to join us one evening. My husband Ed and I have both lived in different countries and other parts of the UK, due to this Ed speaks Russian and Ukrainian reasonably well and I know very basic Kiswahili. I travel quite a bit for work and we all do as a family for pleasure. I try to stay in Airbnb homes whenever I'm away - I've really enjoyed getting to know people in the community and have made some great friends this way. We've lived in Bristol for almost a decade and love it here - it has all the benefits of a city (arts, theatre, music, festivals, great places to eat etc) combined with the community feel and laid back vibe of somewhere a lot smaller. Ed's more of a homebody than I am and it may be that he is your host while I am overseas for work. We enjoy helping our guests find things they might not pick up from a guidebook and hope to share some of our enthusiasm for our adopted city to you. It's a real pleasure and privilege for us to meet the many wonderful people that have come to stay at our home.
